REPLACE THE GALLERY PICTURES: | Click for more details
The best way to setup the pictures in the gallery is not to actually edit the HTML pages and change the pictures on each individual page. The fastest way is to simply replace the pictures in the "gallery" folder with your own by overwriting the files that are in there now and using the same generic names. This will update both the gallery pages and the slideshow.
In the "gallery" folder, replace the 27 "Fgallery" pictures with full size photos. Replace the 27 "gallery" pictures with your thumbnails. The thumbnails are now 100 x 67 pixels and the full sized images are 500 x 333, but you can make them any size that you prefer.
See "options" below to change images in the slideshow.

Edit the text on all HTML pages with your website information. You can use Frontpage, Expression Web, Dreamweaver, GoLive, any wysiwyg HTML editor or a text editor like notepad. Take care not to delete any of the HTML tags that surround the text.
EDIT TITLES, DESCRIPTIONS AND KEYWORDS: | Click for more details
Open each of the pages and change the titles (at the very top of the page) and also the description and the keywords with info about your product or service. You can edit one page and copy and paste to the other pages. Be careful to only change what's inside the "" so you don't disturb the html code. Page titles are important so your site will get a good listing at Google or Bing and other search engines.
UPLOAD: | Click for more details
Upload the pages on to your hosting company's server using ftp software or Windows Explorer or your control panel. Be sure to upload the "picts" and "gallery" and "flash" folders and all files in these folders.

Only change the one instance of the name and not the name with the ".htm" after it. Whatever you edit in the "menu.js" will update every page on the website. Keep the names short so they don't go outside the menu. You can add more pages by copying one button in the "menu.js" and pasting it below the next. Be sure to back up your files before you edit them.
The menu used in the "image-viewer.htm" and "slideshow.htm" is named "menu-gallery.js". You can change and remove links in this menu file as well.

There are notes in the "menu.js" to help you add a button.
